Eko’s Unexpected Audition For The Role Of Snow White

As I mentioned in last Friday’s video, Eko gets a kick out of bobbing for tennis balls at the beach.   He isn’t big on fetch but Eko gets a kick out of dropping tennis balls into the water and then snatching them back up

He isn’t big on fetch but Eko gets a kick out of dropping tennis balls into the water and then snatching them back up

As the gears in my brain were still turning Eko went down to retrieve his bounty

It was an apple!  Eko literally went bobbing for apples!  I didn’t have that activity on our bucket list but I guess I will have to add it and cross it off

Of course, Eko immediately dashed off with his prize, and the good citizens of Chicago enjoyed watching me sprint after him

Luckily Eko didn’t take a bite out of the mystery apple, but as always, his post-beach slumber was as deep as Snow White’s sleep was.  Today Eko is back to his regular role of playing Happy and I remain rightfully cast as Dopey!

Comments for Eko’s Unexpected Audition For The Role Of Snow White

    I like to play fetch with sticks in the water, but bobbing for apples sounds even better.

  2. Well done for getting the apple off Eko but he must have been rather pleased with himself. The best toy ours have found on the beach was a potato – didn’t want to eat it but it gave them so much fun retrieving it as it didn’t bounce evenly. We took one along the next time we went and they couldn’t have been less interested!

  3. I hope snow whites stepmother wasn’t on the beach . In worst case you had to kiss Eko :o)

  4. Jorie says:

    Hahaha super cute. Somebody’s picnic lunch is one apple short, somewhere… 😉

    Mom feels better knowing she isn’t the only fool that chases her dog(s). We like to play that game with her sometimes. What a great find…I bet it would have been really ripe too!

    Tennis balls and the beach are fun! I’ve never tried an apple though. Woooowoooooo! Ku

  7. Sage says:

    Oh, boy, I know what you mean when there’s a unknown food item laying around. I’ve been know to chase Sage down too!

    PeeEss: Mom’s no fun. Sage

  8. Geez, who knows where that came from but good for Eko for tidying up. Big day on the beach always made me sleep too but I’m pretty sure it was the beers.
